In theory.
a Mp3 player is a computer, that only plays music.

Has a memory(ex. harddrive)
Has a motherboard, CPU and tiny amount of RAM.
And controls(keyboard/mouse)

So if you can make a software(Operating software) for example, when you put on the computer, only thing you can do with it is to play music, and supports extra hard drives.
Just use an old laptop computer you can some times get them cheaply off craigslist

yeah... I bought one as a gag gift, but noticed it was cheaply made and probably wouldn't be able to stand up to many throw downs, drops, or much abuse. I was just thinking that if you could make one or reinforce that one would be an ideal mp3 player.... for anyone that needed something that strong.

Try being specific here. How big? How loud? How cheap?

Big as in physically big. I seen a giant mp3 at WalGreens for about $30 it was only 256MB but it made me think that if you built a big mp3 player it would be perfect for those who have trouble seeing, or maybe younger kids.

Big, as in, 1980s cellphone big, or big, as in terabyte big?
